Prudential Center Map

The helpful AB staff have posted up maps of the Hynes and the Sheraton already, located here.
(Staff Note: We will update this as soon as can.)

However, photoshoots often spill into other locations around the Pru, and some people may be confused as to where some of these locations are. Here's a map of the Prudential Center Mall, and it's relationship to the Hynes, the Sheraton, and other major fixtures, for all your photoshoot and meetup planning needs!

Note: When saying a meetup is at "The Courtyard," most people generally are referring to The South Garden on this map.

Stickied this, as it will likely come in handy to people who aren't familiar with the convention layout. Thanks Syagria!

Also, I walked through the Prudential Center on my way to work today, and the South Garden is still closed, so it will not be available for photoshoots for this weekend.

Eek. That's a big problem. I will make a post and sticky it.

This year the South Garden should be open during AB, as it's on Memorial Day weekend (yikes! Only 7 weeks left to get ready!)

Basically, if AB is after Marathon Monday, the South Garden should be open. If before, it likely won't.
I asked one time, and was told that the Pru landscapers need at least 5 days of clear weather to do the work AND they need the nightime lows to stay above freezing. If they can't turn on the fountains, they leave that area closed.

Trinity church is one in the mall marked with a cross on this map right?

There is a small chapel located in the mall, right outside the Hynes (yes, marked with a cross, and next to that other bastion of New England worship, Dunkin Donuts).

However, "Trinity Church," when used in Boston, refers to something very specific: a Romanesque-style church designed by Henry Hobson Richardson and built in 1872. It is a few blocks east of the Hynes Convention Center, and sits on a lawn facing the Boston Public Library.

Quite a different beast from the chapel in the mall!

I do hope that the Pru's website will update their map soon. Though they are likely waiting for that building which is replacing the Boylston Plaza & North Terrace to be completed.

Pardon me, I was wondering if this was the proper place to ask such a question, but is this the thread where we request location dibs for photoshoots, or is that in another thread.
I'm trying to get a group going so we don't have a repeat of last years constant trekking from place to place, and I was wondering how this all worked.

Nope. They post a photoshoot master list thread closer to the con and there you can put when and where your photoshoot is

Forgive me! How are we assigned places? How do we know if a place is already booked? So confused! Apologies, I've never done this before!

The closer we get to the con will be when the master thread goes up which the staff just place what users of groups and gatherings listed or post to them for the locations and times.

As for how to pick them I suggest an area that won't change a bunch and inside the convention with a later time since the lines can become bad. They were awful last year but they are working on ways around it for this year.

My suggestion is posting a facebook page as well even if you dont use it much. It helps out when others see whose going who are friends of the current cosplayers attending...kind of like a congo line or AA meeting....once you start you just cant stop. :twisted:

Since we just collect up what people tell us, you shouldn't consider any spots to be "booked" in advance. Generally speaking we as staff expect groups to be considerate of one another if they set up gatherings in the same time/place.

figured I would post this site here with photos for those trying to find a map of the hynes.

You can do as many are and mark it so people know where the photoshoot is as well. Just takes a little photoshop and uploading it to an image site.

Can't seem to find one for the Hilton though (where the board gaming rooms were last year)
